A city west of Cleveland. Elyria is the only city that has earned the right to be called etown. Its mainly a decaying industrial city with a dying downtown thats losing population. Its not all bad though the Northside and Eastside are both very nice, the westside is kinda bad. The southside is the hood and very dangerous though.
Overall it's not a nice city, but it has many nice parts. In general all of the Northside and Eastside are nice, very white, and somewhat suburban (especially NE and SE). The Westside is more of a mixed area with some hoods and some good. The Southside (south of downtown to wood st, between the river branches and SW side near S W River rd) is all ghetto though and mostly black/mixed with high poverty, crime, gangs, projects, etc. If you're not from the southside (especially if you're white) don't go down there unless you're looking for drugs, as you have a high chance of being robbed or worse. That's Thug City down there. Luckily the whole city isn't like that, I can't say the same for Lorain or Cleveland though...
There's not much to do in the city. Cascade Park is somewhat nice. Downtown is decent but pretty dead. The mall area (NW side) has a lot of stores but it's going downhill. Elyria High School was real ghetto but is now being mostly rebuilt. Lorain County Community College is located here. Basically an average yet unique city in the Cleveland area.
